(0 votes)

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — For the second straight year, the DC Triathlon Club of Washington, D.C., was victorious in the 2012-2013 USA Triathlon National Challenge Competition, logging more than 164,500 weighted training miles between Dec. 1, 2012, and Feb. 28, 2013.

Designed to get triathletes excited about offseason training at the club level, the National Challenge Competition features official USA Triathlon clubs from across the country going head-to-head to see who could log the most training miles during the competition. A total of 1,551,902 weighted training miles were logged by 121 clubs and 3,053 athletes in a three-month period.

The NCC featured three sessions, each one month in duration. Clubs recorded their training miles and submitted them on the NCC website for automatic calculation and ranking. Mileage totals were weighted with each swimming mile equaling 10 miles and each running mile equaling three miles. Cycling miles were not weighted. 

After finishing seventh in 2011, the DC Triathlon Club has clinched the overall and Division I titles for the past two years. The team was the first to reach the designated benchmarks for each month and posted an impressive 164,569.67 weighted miles to top the standings and lead the Mid-Atlantic region to a regional win. The Triathlon Club of San Diego from San Diego, Calif., was second overall with 146,190.58 miles, and Cyclonaut Multisport of Agawam, Mass., once again finished third with 114,505.74.

Winners in the other four club divisions include Louisville Landsharks Triathlon Club (Division II, 77,262.62 miles), Brentwood Endurance Athletic Team (Division III, 73,665.23), Get Fit Families (Division IV, 73,111.98) and PR MultiSport Endurance Team (Division V, 45,407.29). Club divisions are determined by club membership size.

David Bowne, who represents Seattle’s Jet City Tri, captured the overall individual male win for the third year in a row with 8,519.89 miles, and Jacque Myers from the Tallahassee, Fla.-based Gulf Winds Triathletes logged 6,874.9 miles as the top female competitor, finishing third overall.

Full National Challenge Competition results are available at race-tracker.net/usat. Registration for the 2013-2014 competition will begin November 1.
